Systems for Personal Applications:
M. Richharia and L. Westbrook
the concepts, technology, and role of satellite systems in support
of personal applications, such as mobile and broadband communications,
navigation, television, radio and multimedia broadcasting, safety
of life services, etc.
book presents a novel perspective on satellite systems, reflecting
the modern personal technology context, and hence a focus on the
individual as the end-user. The book begins by outlining key generic
concepts before discussing techniques adopted in particular application
areas; next, it exemplifies these techniques through discussion
of state-of-art current and emerging satellite systems. The book
concludes by contemplating the likely evolution of these systems,
taking into consideration influences and trends in technology, in
conjunction with growing user expectations.
addition to addressing satellite systems that directly interact
with personal devices, the book additionally considers those indirect
applications where there is an increasing interest by individuals
- notably, in remote sensing. As such, the book uniquely encompasses
the entire gamut of satellite-enabled personal / end-user applications.
scope: views satellite systems generically with regards to their
applicability across a wide range of personal application
Strong foundation in underlying concepts
of trends in relevant areas of satellite technology
Revision questions at the end of each chapter
book is suited to individuals, engineers, scientists, service providers,
system operators, application developers and managers interested
or involved in the use of satellite technology for personal applications.
It should also hold interest for use in research institutes interested
in promoting inter-disciplinary cross-fertilization of ideas, as
well as by financiers, policy makers, and strategists interested
in gaining a better understanding of this technology.
